Attaining master gardener goal is fulfilling
Web-posted 01/22/10
It's official: I am a master gardener. Last week I completed 50 hours of volunteer service and Sue Norton and Valerie Martin bestowed the coveted master gardener's certificate and badge.
Winter is good time to move plants around in landscape
Web-posted 01/22/10
We all make landscaping mistakes. My most recent one resulted in me having to move a dwarf crape myrtle about a foot because I had planted two of them too close together. Fortunately, winter is a great time to correct landscaping mistakes.
Houseplants fill gardening void
Web-posted 01/15/10
The temperature has returned to a level that gnomes can endure, but the cold trapped me inside last week with only houseplants to fill my gardening fix.
The seeds of spring will soon be planted
Web-posted 01/15/10
Given the frigid weather we've had since the first of the year, it is hard to believe that before too long it will be time to start some flowers from seed.
Vertical gardens require support
Web-posted 01/15/10
Things are looking up for gardeners who are short on space but long on imagination.
Most plants should revive in springtime
Web-posted 01/08/10
If you were beginning to wonder whether gnomes hibernate for the winter, the answer is no. Unfortunately. I'm still here, and this past week I've been fretting over the weather and its effect on the unmulched vegetable bed (goodbye, lettuce) and everything else that was once green.
Select plants suited for this area
Web-posted 01/08/10
As most of us already knew, and are being reminded this week, January is the coldest month of the year. The temperature can drop quickly, as much as 30 to 40 degrees in just a few hours, when cold fronts move through.
Living walls may be the ultimate raised-bed garden
Web-posted 01/08/10
Things are looking up for gardeners who are short on space but long on imagination. It's increasingly easy to build vertical gardens, structures that enable plants to grow upward if there is no room for growing them laterally.
Christmas trees can improve fishing
Web-posted 01/01/10
Your Christmas tree can have a second life as fish habitat. Through Tuesday, you can drop off your natural Christmas tree (no artificial trees) at Riverside Middle School, 1095 Furys Ferry Road in Evans.
Rain was plentiful last year
Web-posted 01/01/10
Today, I will continue a tradition I started three years ago, a recap of the gardening year just past.
Deck the halls and garden with red and green
Web-posted 01/01/10
The darkest time of year, when days are shortest and the sun hangs lowest in the sky, is surely an odd time to pick for celebration. Then again, what better way to show faith in the continuity of life?
Yard work could fill spare time
Web-posted 12/25/09
Merry Christmas to all of you. Many of you are off from now until next year. If you are like me, that means you can get caught up on yard work.
Style trumps abundance in festive floral arranging
Web-posted 12/25/09
Flowers are a sure way to dress up your home for the holidays, and you don't need a lot of expensive blooms to do it. Floral stylists say this is the year when style trumps opulence.
